In December 2012, a settlement was reached and approved making all businesses in the affected zones – not just the seafood and tourism industries – eligible for compensation for damages that occurred as a result of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill. As a result, you and / or your business may be able to get payments and other benefits from two separate legal settlements, the Economic Settlement and the Medical Settlement.
Senior Partner Philip F. Cossich, is a member of the Plaintiffs Steering Committee (PSC). The PSC has provided a website where claimants and potential claimants can learn more about either settlement, as well as access claim forms, detailed claim protocols, answers to frequently asked questions, maps, important documents and other information. If you have questions about whether or not you have a claim or would like further assistance with respect to each settlement, contact our experienced BP Claims Attorneys.
